    Amazing and well worth the $10 usd per person (kids free).

    There was lots to see and so much to learn! We had our two young children and they were very patient with us! Stroller friendly!

    In addition to the gardens, we saw scarlet macaws, toucans, and a lineated woodpecker. On the way down, we saw a Coati cross the road. Four wheel drive recommended.

    My favorite shop to visit on my yearly trip to CR. Interesting art and handmade goods by Costa Ricans and some from Guatemala. Chocolates, soap, coffee, handmade wooden pieces, jewelry and woven textiles are among my favorites. The owner is wonderful! I'll be back next January! Barbara from CT

    Beautiful beach with large cascading cliffs on each end. It is definitely a surf beach so waves crashing, strong undertow so need to be a good swimmer to be in it. No shells just beautiful rocks so would be good to have swim shoes. Very wide beach at low tide so great to walk and amazing sunsets. Restaurants around to walk to, sand is dark and hard to get out of a swimsuit but worth a fun day here. Definitely want to rent chairs and umbrellas which we did with Ticos.

    Super quirky and fun side trip. Worth the trip to the top. Amazing view and some good graffiti to see. Carvings of animals into the retaining wall on the way up was my favorite part.

    This is a demanding hike, but well worth it. I am not in the best shape so I needed 3 to 3.5 hours for this excursion. We saw frogs on the hike! The humidity is no joke, bring plenty of water. Our kids loved it! You will get a work out! It is very steep for most of the hike. The man who took our $20 each said he would watch our car until 5 p.m., but he was not there when we came back up at 4:30, so maybe try leave time to get back up before 4 p.m.

    Discovered this wonderful community center while on a walk. They offer classes in the late afternoon and evening which may or may not be in Enlish.

    Stopped by driving back to San Jose. It’s nice and clean as are the bathrooms. The restaurants look nice, but mostly look like dinner places and the shopping was more for locals I think

    beach front roos are great. 10m to beach and about the same to food.
    gets a bit loud in the evenings but can be avoided by being on the beach side although bar music will still be noticeable in room.
    staff was friendly and helpful. food was good and fairly priced.
    this in not a family friendly place. there are lots of 'working girls' but easily avoidable if that is not your thing.
    AC worked well, shower had good pressure and temp.
